Numb

On July 20, 2017, the world lost one of the most influential musicians of my generation, Chester Bennington was found hanged in his home in California and for me, this was one of the hardest deaths I’ve had to figure out how to cope with. Picking a song from Linkin Park to go along with the styling in this blog is much harder than you’d ever think.  For me, every song they ever wrote was about breaking free of the box that holds you, becoming yourself, healing the wounds and fighting to be who and what you are meant to be. Linkin Park has been a huge influence on my life for 20 years and knowing that I will never again hear Chester belt out in his very unique voice a new tune that inspires you breaks my heart.

Indie Teepee is open right now and KraftWorks is there with this all new stage. I love this and it fits in so well with my tribute to Chester. The world is not a box is what the stage screams, with a rezzer to build it and a HUD to change the lighting with 9 colors there are so many things you can do with this stage, the possibilities are endless.

Kokomo

When I was a kid, Cocktail came out, the hit song from The Beach Boy, Kokomo was part of the soundtrack and it was forever emblazoned in my mind with escaping and living your dreams. I got this set from KraftWork and immediately thought of beautiful beaches, crisp white sand, the waves gently licking at my feet. My perfect escape. I’m working on a plan to get where I really want to be in RL and the first step was finding a job that won’t make me eat, sleep, and breath it. That done, next, I am going to fix my credit, get a few other things I’ve put off taken care of and by the time my youngest daughter graduates high school I should be well on my way to living the life I was meant to live.

First up, I want to cover the featured pic of this blog, since that is where you can see the amazing beach burger shack created by the one and only KraftWork. This is available right now at Knot & Co until September. It is all one piece and comes with the sandbox with chairs situated in front of the shack. The whole things is just fabulous.

Knowing the location for my scene was easy and having seen an ad on Facebook for a brand new hair from Doe I knew I was going to use that too, but what to wear? There are so many bikinis and swimsuits available right now, but I didn’t want to go that route. I went digging through my blogger pages in Blogotex and landed on this adorable dress from MOoH! With 6 mix and match colors to choose from you can make this dress completely your own. The top is solid, the skirt patterned and textured individually so that you can mix and match colors. It comes with standard sizes, standard fitmesh sizes, Maitreya and Slink. This is part of the all new Spring Cleaning event.

It’s the end of the month and I am sitting here, digging through my inventory, looking at all the amazing things the creators have sent out in blogging groups and I feel no inspiration. Not because the stuff they send is bad or because I don’t want to blog, but it’s simply a matter of I’ve taken on more than I can chew and have fallen behind. Upon speaking to a blogger friend, we’ve decided it must be spring fever. This winter was so long and dreary and now the sun is shining and the urge to be doing anything but sitting at a computer is overwhelming. I am having to make some very difficult decisions on the groups that I blog for, as I don’t feel I am representing them properly. I don’t want to “drop” anyone but at the same time, I cannot give them the coverage they deserve.
What’s worse is a group that I would die to blog for opens apps and I put one in and then feel immediately guilty because I’m not even covering the groups that have entrusted me. Blogging is a tough gig, one that I love and thrive on usually but also one I am having to take a hard look at. I have spent the better part of the past year, on my blogging platform, avoiding interactions with people all in the name of building my blog, it has been a lonely existence but blogging was everything to me. It’s time to take a step back and re-evaluate. There are many creators that I could never leave and so much more I feel guilty for contemplating leaving, but I am honestly doing them a disservice by not giving them the blogging coverage that they deserve.

Today I have chosen to include some items that are not from a sponsor’s store as well as some items that are. Essentially getting back to my roots of blogging. Uber opened on May 25 and yes I got in immediately and got the items that I wanted, here it is 3 days later and I am finally getting around to posting the pictures I took for this blog. Masoom is at Uber with this amazing new dress and from the moment I saw the WIP I knew I would own it. This gown is materials enabled and sparkles and shines when you have advanced lighting on. It is truly a stunning gown. I bought it in two colors even though I seriously debated buying the fatpack. There is also an optional necklace available for purchase.

Another amazing designer at Uber is Minimal with an all new set of backdrops. I have become a backdrop queen and grab them whenever I see them. There is a total of 4 individual backdrops or a fatpack and the very urban backdrops are great for almost anything, I mean I used it with a formal. A misplaced lady in the city.

Foxcity does some of the best Bento poses out there, this is an older set that I picked up a few month ago and I keep coming back to them because they fit so well into what I want to portray. This set, called Surface is a set of 7 poses total, with pose 7 being the fatpack bonus. I totally recommend bypassing the individuals and going straight for the fatpack when you get Foxcity.

When I bought this dress I wanted a hair that would compliment it but was kind of fun at the same time, I searched high and low and finally made my way to Wasabi Pills. I love this hair, the loose braided style with the flyaway bangs was just what I wanted. I haven’t taken it off since I bought it, it just goes so well with everything.  This hair includes two versions and is available in all standard color packs.

Lumae does some of the most stunning skins I’ve seen in Second Life, I adore the fact that she includes almost every applier you’ll ever need, although most skins are made specifically for one type of mesh head only. There is always a freckled and non-freckled option as well as three cleavage options. This skin is stunning and is bare so that you can apply whatever makeups you want to make your look uniquely you. This skin is made specifically for Lelutka and is shown on my Lelutka Cate Bento mesh head.

Alright, so I made it through another blog, please don’t think that this is a negative posting, in fact, it’s the opposite. I am simply stating my concerns, my thoughts, and my feelings. Trying to work through my block in my way. I am honored to blog for the designers that I do and hope that future designers don’t look at this and think “this girl is bipolar, we don’t want her”. Sometimes we get overwhelmed and with no one to talk to about your feelings it can get crushing. So you, my dear reader, are my sounding board. Thank you for making it to the end with me, if you’re still here. <3

So I have this pretty amazing boyfriend, he not only supports me blogging he actually helps me come up with ideas every once in a while, he’s got a wonderful, quirky sense of humor and is willing to help me out any way I need for my blog. I got a new outfit from Wicca’s Wardrobe for Fantasy Gacha Carnival and when he say it, he said: “you look like you belong in an Industrial club.” The idea was born and brought to life with his help.

As I stated above, Wicca’s Wardrobe is at Fantasy Gacha Carnival with this amazing outfit. Wicca’s Wardrobe produces 100% original mesh items and this gacha is no exception. The gacha itself includes 2 rare items and 20 commons. The rares have a color change HUD to mix and match, the commons come in 4 different colors. Each piece comes with a metal change HUD.

Last Time for Everything

Okay, don’t strangle me, I’m bored and when I’m bored I blog or try to nap which failed and I really don’t want to clean house yet so I blog.
Sometimes you have to sit and enjoy the small things in life, like a fabulous conversation, your daughter’s first real date, just making it through one more day. There is one last time for everything. Take time to enjoy everything because you never know when it will be the last time.

I love when two designers come together, in perfect harmony, unbeknownst to them to create the best outfit. That happened for me today with Riot and MoOH! The two separate pieces, believe it or not, do not go together. MoOH! has released this super cute lace top and bra set for Level Up, going on now until April 15. You have a couple of more days to get there and get this awesome top for the reduced price of 125L and it includes 12 colors.

(don’t fear) The Reaper

I really struggled with this post, not because I dislike the outfit, my look or anything like that, the complete opposite in fact. I love this dress from Wicca’s Wardrobe, the boots are freaking amazing and the skin and hair were just what I needed to complete my look.
What I struggled with was the materials-enabled feature that is prominent in Wicca’s Wardrobe products. This is one of the things that sets Wicca apart from so many is the fabulous shine she adds to her products, but when using my lighting it totally changed the look of the outfit and I was fearful that I couldn’t represent the amazing quality that is Wicca. I even went so far as to ask if there was a non-material enabled version, there’s not. The thing is the way this dress looks in my pictures is not what it looks like as the standard, as a matter of fact, it looks so different, I’m including a snapshot I did on a green screen to show you what it does look like. There are no credits on that picture at the very end of this blog.

Wicca’s Wardrobe is at Black Fair with this amazing new dress. It comes in only one color, black, with a color change HUD for the transparent strips. This dress is fit for Maitreya and both Slink bodies.

Hopeful: Anti-Bullying Awareness

I recently saw a post on Facebook that completely made me ill, the level of degradation, the words of hate in the name of funny just made me angry. I was so angry that I went and bought the outfit that was the pun in their private/public joke.
It is NEVER ok to bully anyone. Whether it is a peer, a designer in Second Life, or one child to another. We can all do our part to stop bullying. My part was “applauding” these people for their hateful comments, I fought back with kindness and then I supported the designer that was the brunt of their joke.

This is the outfit in question, the one made fun of and the comments were so rude and hateful that they don’t deserve to be revisited. Personally, I love this outfit so much I went to Collabor88 and bought the entire fatpack of both the top and the shorts. I think she did a fabulous job of creating this set.

I also visited Shoetopia and grabbed these awesome trainers from Vale Koer. As with any product by this fabulous designer, the HUD is extensive and gives you so many options of how to wear them, including flat and tip-toe.

This skin is from another creator, on that I do officially blog for and one I consider a friend. She’s been told her skins are horrible and that she should just give up. I, on the other hand, find her skins stunning, fun, and unique. The options that come with Lumae skins are by far some of the best. Plain and freckled, appliers for just about everything out there. The prices are extremely reasonable and there are 10 skin tone varieties to choose from. This particular skin is called Ruby and is available at The Avenue. Makeup free and ready for your Catwa only head, it’s perfect.
